JOHN F Loughrey Financial Services in Letterkenny received a perfect birthday present last night when they were crowned the regional broker of the year at the inaugural Irish Brokers Association (IBA) Life, Pensions and Investment Awards.
The event was organised to give recognition to the life, pension and investment brokers who have proved their excellence, professionalism and dedication to maintaining high standards in the Irish market.
John F Loughrey Financial Services was one of only three brokers who were short-listed for the ‘Best Broker Connaught/Ulster category as well as the ‘Best Overall Broker.’
The company was awarded the regional award for best broker in Connaught/Ulster at the ceremony in the Mansion House in Dublin.
Speaking to the Donegal News from Dublin this morning, a tired but delighted John Loughrey said the award could not have come at a better time.
“We are all over the moon and it is great to have received the award in the same week we are celebrating 30 years in business,” Mr Loughrey said.
He was joined at the ceremony by his daughter Lisa, a director of the company, as well as nine staff members.
“Lisa joined the company ten years ago and it is great for her to be part of this. Myself and Lisa accepted the award on behalf of John F Loughrey Financial Services and our hard working and dedicated staff.”
On Sunday, January 21, the band will play their only Irish performance and launch their album, 'Wind and Water'...
